A little disappointed

My friend and I visited The Rag about 4 weeks ago, it was my birthday treat from her. It's been quite a few years since I was last there. Our table was booked for 1.30. We were taken to our seats and our order was taken. The room we were in was full but we didn't have to wait too... read more

Yes the food in the rag was very good and service fine but please.... the bar, lounge and dining areas spoil it. Not a dress up place just jeans and a jumper will suffice. Very dated decor almost back to the early 80's. I'd give it a miss personally. Great, top notch affordable food but would never go back due... More

The Rag never fails to impress. From the moment you walk in you are made to feel welcome and the service is faultless. Only problem now is when I eat elsewhere it just does not match the quality and service of the Rag. If your a fan of Real Ale you won't be disappointed as it is kept to a... More

Booked online for our anniversary. So easy to do and the meal was beautiful. We both had three courses with drinks at a cost of £65. Service was very good so would recommend giving The Rag a try.
